    I just bought an end dump trailer.

    I need a kit to pin my 5th Wheel since I have a frameless end dump. I can't seem to figure out which brand of 5th wheel that I have.

    Would anyone know bases off of a picture what brand I have?

    Or would you have a recommendation for a 5th wheel blocking/pin kit? Thank you IMG_9426.jpg IMG_9441.jpg IMG_9441.jpg IMG_9441.jpg

    Looks like a fontaine 6000 same as mine. Just get a pin custom made. I couldnt find a kit that would fit mine at all and custom was the route i was forced to take.

    That looks like a Holland to me. Most folks just make their own or replace the entire thing with a blocked wheel

    Inland Truck parts says they sell a pin kit but we couldn't figure out what 5th wheel I have. The guy told me to go home and scrub all the grease off and try to find a marking on my fifth wheel.

    I'm hoping to get my trailer on the road without waiting too long for a kit to ship. Some online retailers are saying 10+ days before the parts even ship.

    Anyone have idea's on making a pin that I can weld on? I'm trying to think of parts I can get locally. I have a tig welder and could custom build something.

    I would need a removable pin VS a block because I still want to be able to haul a step deck. Thank you
